Circle

....the drain? thata'way...

No, it's really not supposed to be this way. Not a good way to start the year.

There are times where I feel like I can and do make the right decisions but then spend countless hours re-analysing and over-analysing them after I have made them. Today is one of those days. Fully half of yesterday was also one of those days.

I am scared of being overly demanding, overly frustrated, overly angry, overly disappointed...yet, my heart tells me that I need to make these decisions to keep myself honest. To do otherwise, makes me a liar, an obfuscator, one satisfied with not being satisfied.

Right now I feel like I'm in a cage and there's no way out. I cannot move without pain, guilt, hurt, endless doubt...I sit and think and sit and think. I think there is a shred of assertiveness, dignity and self-awareness inside of me but it all seems to be buried under a mound of bad and worse feelings.

Without these things, I'm like a lifeless shell, circling around a drain, grasping at things to "keep me busy" to keep me from sitting and thinking and sitting and thinking...all for speaking my mind, expressing honesty...and making the decision to do so.
